The two reworked pictures really set off the highlights in her hair, especially the first one, that I found distracted me from her face or the book. If she was a model for hair coloring it would work well, but in this case I found it too distracting. Cropping helped the composition of the photo, but I would have cropped the book in her lap, and while I understand the reasoning behind it, I felt the artistic value of the photo suffered.

There is a lot going on in the picture, probably too much. My eye couldn't settle on one feature. Cropping out a lot of the extra stuff would help a lot. If the water was calm the reflection would be an interesting contrast, but it just muddies up the image as it is. Great subject though.

I wanted to thank you all for your replies and thoughtful comments. It gave me the start to identifiying my problem. Apparently you have to have lenses that have the m setting on the aperture ring and apparently mine are too old, they date back to my film days 30 years ago. I borrowed a friend's lens with the m setting and it worked like you all said.

I will have to figure out a way to determine exposure apart from from the gray card or buy newer lenses. I used to have an exposure meter long ago but it got wet and never worked again. Anybody use the sunny 16 rule?

Thats what I thought at first but mine is always at 0, no matter how much I spin the wheel. Thats why I am wondering if there is a setting that I need to change or if there is a button I need to press.

I am a visual person. Reading the manual just confuses me, but once I see it then I remember it. I guess thats why I love photograpy so much, but the terminology confuses me :)

Ok, it seems that my education is lacking. I am unsure in which way white balance and exposure are related. I had always thought that WB was for color saturation.

If you are in M mode, again fill the fame with the gray card, you should see a similar scale to the one shown on the Nikon. Turn your thumb wheel until the indicator is in the center

Therein lies the rub. I just do not see that indicator. Can you tell me where I can see it at or if there is a setting I need to set to see it. I am flying blind here it seems :confused:

I have a long history of using pentax cameras, but it was alway by the seat of my pants and using lots of film. When I got my k200d a few years ago, I continued to take pictures the same way. Anyway I decided to take a class and the professor wants us to use a gray card to determine exposure.

As you might guess the prof is totally ignorant about pentax cameras and the way he was demonstrating on the Nikon doesn't match anything on my camera. He pointed the camera at a gray card, hold the shutter half way and the view finder shows him a +/- scale that he spins the wheel until it is neutral. I can't seem to find that scale. The only one I see is for the AV setting but not on manual. I scoured the threads and manuals but there is no step my step instructions on how to maually determine exposure with a gray card and he wants us to use manual only. I understand ISO and f-stops, but the determining shutter speed has got me stumped. Can someone point the way to understanding this? Thanks!
